. >> reporter: absolutely, lynn. this has been the big story outside the u.s. today. we've seen coverage all over the television with foreign correspondence stations not just in washington and florida, but all over the u.s. extensive coverage in newspapers, websites. virtually every foreign news organization has on its website a prominent section devoted to the u.s. election. that's tough to imagine in the u.s., that we would pay that kind of attention to another country's political contest. in fact, "the times" in london said their u.s. election section is now their most clicked aside from their home page and the views of it have gone up about 500% since august. part of the reason for all of this global attention is that so many people in so many other countries are looking for a catalyst for change in their own nations coming from a strong decision in the u.s. tonight there will be watch parties all over the world lasting all night long. lynn? >> all right, michelle kosinski for us in london. >>> right now vice president joe biden is in line along with his wife jill and son beau. he is the
and on the web. you think about it, virtually every major publication outside of the u.s. has a section on its website that is devoted to this election. that's hard for us in the states to have any comparison to. i mean, we just don't devote that kind of attention in general to another country's political contest. in fact, the times here in london told us that the u.s. election subject is the most clicked in the past month other than their home page and views of it have increased by 500% since august. across the world tonight there will be watch parties. that's pretty impressive considering that when polls close in america it will be well after midnight. here it will be just about midnight. especially at u.s. embassies people will be watching. one british analyst told us it is possible as many brits will be watching these results as watched the results of their own elections. lynn. >> michelle, interesting. thanks so much. >>> the presidential election isn't the only thing happening today. there are some very close sen 2345i9 races happening across the country. >> reporter: the power struggle

here say there's no equivalent in the u.s., that americans never have that feeling of looking up to another power as a source of stability and growth for themselves. we had our crews span out to seven countries in europe and asia where people said they absolutely are looking at this election at this time as hugely important to their own futures and concerns. those concerns, of course, varied by region. in countries in transition, egypt and afghanistan, people were concerned about continuity and aid. they were worried about what forging new relationships with a new administration would mean exactly to them. in europe, all about the economy. in fact, a poll was done that showed 75% of europeans would vote for obama. 92% of germans. when you look at a place like, say, israel, if the election happened here, the landslide would be romney's. he's gained enormous support there after he visited and has been vocally supportive of potential israeli action against iran's nuclear facilities. >> michelle, thank you. >>> we want to let you know right here, brian williams and our entire politic
